Please note that Nigerian Universities do not offer this course in one faculty. Some offer the course in Faculty of Administration, while others offers it in Faculty of Social and Management Science (SMS)

The UTME and Direct requirement below was lifted from JAMB Official Brochure (JAMB IBASS). It is the Updated, Accurate and Official version.

WARNING: Please take your time and read through this page because this course is offered in different faculties and each faculty has a different requirement. If confused, you can always use the comment box on this page and ALLSCHOOL will answer you ASAP.

In JAMB, what is the meaning of Special Consideration (Waiver)??

It means, an additional requirement for a particular course in a particular school. If your school has a special consideration for either O’level Requirement, UTME Subject Combination, or Direct Entry Requirement, then please take note of it.

Note sometimes in the special consideration column, the school requirement might be slightly different from the general requirement.

We advise you to always check if your school of choice has a different requirement in the special consideration column.
